the year. seema mody is at the nasdaq today. jeff, what do you make of what's going on in washington? i'm most interested in the fact that the markets have lost the volatili volatility. we're not seeing the markets respond to every single statement that comes out of washington right now. what do you make of that? >> i think it's the same washington waltz we saw last year. they didn't extend the bush tax cuts until december 17th. they didn't handle the payroll tax until december 23rd. i lived inside the beltway. i have a pretty good network on the hill. i think they're going to have some kind of staged in agreement and then agree to attack the entitlement situation in the new year. >> michael, what do you make of what's going on? how do you try and trade this? at least we had some volatility the traders could trade on. now we don't have that. >> i think the lower volatility is telling you this is an extremely resilient stock market. i've been calling this the rocky balboa stock market. the entire scenario playing out is the fiscal cliff ends up being bullish no matter what.

wondering, jeff, a lot of the headwinds that bill just mentioned, the regulatory environment and very low interest rates which squeezes their margins, are any of these things going to clear up and go away in 2013? >> well, i think one of the reasons that you are seeing the big banks doing well coming into year end isn't so much that those things are lessening but they are better equipped to handle it. right now with the regulatory and the net interest margin pressures, scale and efficiency is more important than ever and the money center banks have it. it's a matter of whether they can deliver it. they have the scale and starting to see them deliver the efficiency so cost management is a big thing that helps them. also they have businesses away from the traditional banking, net interest lending, and capital markets, could see some pretty strong numbers next year and the money center banks, they are shrinking their liability footprintson so on a funding cost side they have a lot of advantages that a lot of other smaller banks don't have. >> let's use an exam. bank of america, one of th
